I first heard ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri while sitting at Rooster’s eating wings. I looked it up on the phone app Shazam that time and also the next couple of times I heard it. I just couldn’t  get it out of my head. I searched for it on the Internet and got the basic chords and started playing it on piano. I knew I didn’t quite have it right so I bought the sheet music. I started recording it about that time. Here is the finished product. (?) I hope I can get it out of my head now. Recording it usually works.

I have never seen Twilight.

I used: Korg Krome for Piano; 1988 Fender Stratocaster AS guitar; 1972 Rickenbacker 4001 bass; Ludwig Drums w/Zildjian and Paiste Cymbals; Bar Chimes
